I used to think all of Haydn's symphonies were total hack work. Then I heard one live, played by an orchestra who cared, on original instruments in a church in Berkeley, and I cried for a good twenty minutes. There were layers and layers and layers of stuff in there I had no idea existed in Haydn's music.

Have you listened much to Haydn's quartets and piano sonatas? Splendid stuff. I could listen to it over and over, and have.
